Big Bad Voodoo Daddy & Reverend Raven
Back by popular demand Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will be returning to Regner Park in West Bend, WI on Friday, July 18 for another incredible show in a great venue for a great cause. Last year over 2,000 guests were treated to a fabulous high energy concert. Don't miss their return on July 18.
2013 marked the 20th Anniversary of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's remarkable arrival onto the music scene. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy hit pop music superstardom with their appearance in front of millions during the halftime show of the 1999 Super Bowl, while their 2003 New Orleans inspired album, Save My Soul, shifted focus to playing theaters, performing arts centers, and large outdoor venues to selling out shows at the Hollywood Bowl, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Lincoln Center, Chastain Park and Constitution Hall, to name just a few. The band often plays more than 150 shows a year and has appeared as special guests with many of the great American symphony orchestras.
While Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has sold millions of albums, the stage has always been the band's first home. "We make records because we have to, but play live because we love to," says Morris. Americana Deluxe was really the first album to capture what we were doing live and we strive to capture the energy and excitement of the live show in all our recordings. It's amazing how the chemistry in this band still works after so many years. Whether on stage or traveling down the road on the bus, everyone is hanging out together, laughing and enjoying being part of such a remarkable enterprise and enduring friendship — one that is so rare in this business." http://www.bbvd.com/theatre_home.html
The evening will kick off with Reverend Raven and the Chain Smoking Alter Boys playing traditional blues, straight up with a big dose of passion with smoking grooves, served up with hot harmonica and smooth stinging guitar. http://www.reverendraven.com/

Opening for Hotel California will be Milwaukee's the WhiskeyBelles
The WhiskeyBelles is not your typical Milwaukee band. Not even taking into account the band's entirely female populace, the outfit expertly toes the line of talented original act and more-than capable cover band. It's upbeat and experienced melding of country, folk and Americana proves a welcome resident to dive bars and massive outdoor festivals alike. And at the tender age of two, the trio has managed to garner growing consideration from local promoters… not to mention a Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) award along the way. - Milwaukee Magazine
WhiskeyBelles are nominated for 2014 Americana/Bluegrass Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and The People's Choice Award. Kimmy was also nominated for String Player of the Year! Yeeehaw!
Winners will be announced at the Awards Show, April 27 at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton.
